Back from Vacation

Well, the last week has been pretty busy. The week before my vacation arrived, my work life exploded. More work to do than God intended. Bleah.

The week of my vacation was busier than hell. We had a "fun" vacation, as opposed to a "relaxing" vacation. We went to the beach, and mornings were spent on the sand, evenings in amusement parks, with some reversals as weather and time permitted. We had a blast, and we needed that as a family. First vacation, real vacation that is, in 10 years! Way too long to wait, in my humble opinion.

But I'm exhausted now. I need a vacation from the vacation, and work has not let up at all while I was gone. One of these days I'll get rid of my real job and be able to spend time just doing what I love. Until then, I gotta pay the bills.

I caught up on all the orders that have posted while I was gone (sorry for the delays) and I've got a couple more things to finish up on the Green Work Lesson 2 (sorry for the delays) and I haven't even started the next Black Lesson (sorry for the delays). But I'm ready! Things should be rolling out shortly.

I've also got to catch up on all the blog posts for the last week.

And at some point, I'd kinda like to do some magic, too. It's been too long. Maybe this evening. I had meant to wake at dawn every day of the vacation and make a talisman, but that didn't work out at all. "Unrealistic Expectations" is what that's called, I believe.


  1. Sorry to hear that your vacation brought no real rest, but glad to hear you guys had a good time. Good to have you back!

    Though I didn't get up at dawn for every single day, I did manage to make all the talismans which are now arranged on my altar in accordance with the Glyph! Got to do some wicked awesome conjure this week, exciting stuff. 3 of those conjures were outdoors, and a couple of them really blew me away (especially Saturn... Oh man...)

    I look forward to the next round of Work!

  2. I always promise myself to keep a vacation journal: at least a couple of lines every day. I never succeed. That's vacation for you.

  3. Welcome back!,

    I know the feeling...: you went on a vacation...come back to work a week later and you find out that you need another vacation to recover from the vacation!

    Well, you'll be ok...:D

    Let's get back to work, there are many things to do by now, let's hope we catch them up.

    Glad to hear back from you.

  4. I think that is pretty common for a family vacation. Its always more running then relaxing, but worth it anyhow.

  5. RO: Yes, I missed your voice while you were gone. Glad to have you back :D
